julieclair @TheBookHippie Yes! And even if they manage to hold their tongues, their facial expression and body language makes their opinions clear, lol. 😂 But honestly, that scene was incredible. The impertinence and condescension. Ugh. 2w

julieclair @TheBookHippie Start practicing your zen breathing exercises now... 😂🧘‍♀️ 2w
TheBookHippie @julieclair LOL 🧘🏻‍♀️ I stay home and avoid the world on Mother‘s Day. Tradition I started when I turned 45. I‘m allowed a peaceful beautiful day. I‘ve done my time 🤣 2w
julieclair @TheBookHippie What a lovely idea! Mother's Day the way YOU want it! And I bet books will be involved... 😃📚 2w

mollyrotondo My edition‘s notes on this chapter talk about this book being an early example of the temperance novel. I love that this book explains the importance of understanding a family history of addiction and how it needs to be tempered in future generations in order to stop the cycle but is also very honest about how much to control this when raising a child since outright denial can lead to the same outcome of overindulgence. Really love her writing. 2w
